question, i just wanted to clarify something or bring it to your attention, a lot of us here today work for the administration in this building which is actually is a pump station still in use that uses diesel pumps to pump the water from the ocean so it's not just a fire house, it's also us being exposed to diesel exhaust, and so with you mentioned this gal, rachel, is she the person who's not here today, or when you were talking about the air quality, having your air quality tested, and the odd thing is now a different agency runs and maintains these pumps that are right beneath us now so it gets kind of complicated, but i think i've been exposed, i worked at the airport for 11 years and then worked here, i have this exposure to diesel smell that you don't notice it here, i do notice it frequently, and so when you mention this gal rachel. >> so, just before this, we had a meeting because we're working on hopefully building a study to look at exposures among women in the fire course to understand what they're exposed to, this raises a really interesting kind of unique sub population wi

a lot of time in meetings with us, that can actually offer their ideas on line, and we take those ideas very seriously. so we've been working on things on like how to make muni faster, how to bring fresh foods to low income poverty areas of the city, and our newest one, just to given you a sense, we wanted everybody to help us develop and design a new library card. talk about civic engagement. 2,000 submissions on line for a new designed library card. that leads me to a challenge that i would like to announce, as part of this night rover challenge, and that is we have been asking ourselves a question, along the lines of energy use in the city, something that has been hard for us to figure out. and that has to do with what would inspire you, as someone who lives in the city, to give your data of your own energy use in the city, like your home energy use? all that data about when you use it, what are your hot times, your cool times. how about if we try to find some way to inspire people to give us that]h data, in some coordinated way. because if we understand that 20 to 22% of our e

>> school is fun? >> they teach us in a fun way. john: you look forward to going to school? >> yes. twenty-seven regular government schools get results because they are a government monopoly of almost always do a lousy job. up against the education blob that his job of the hunt teachers' union comment janitor union, bureaucrats they're resist change that is why -- while i was excited charters schools. schools could experiment the parents would see how much better it could be and kids would benefit from the innovation. it is not happening. sometimes. but the center for education reform says the charter movement has gone wrong. what happened is an example. >> my group have put together an application to start a charter school and we have been repeatedly stonewalled 57 because of your own daughter's experience you've got together with people and said we will start a charter. >> the first application was 100 pages could. denied. >> they said there was not a need we had typographical errors in the applicatn. john: wouldn't mcdonald's like to say that to burger king? >> yes. john: you tr
, lieutenant paul vance. lieutenant, thank you so much for finding time for us. you said something yesterday that you thought the search of the various crime scenes had been successful, and you might have found something that would help us understand the why and the how of this. what can you tell us about that? >> well, i can tell you, certainly, the major crime detectives of the state police have been working continuously since this tragedy unfolded, searching not only the initial crime scene at the school, but a secondary crime scene that we also discovered during the investigation. investigators have executed a number of search warrants and many, many different locations, and i can't detail what's been recovered, but i can tell you that a significant amount of evidence has been recovered and is being cataloged and processed that will certainly assist us in this investigation. >> schieffer: well, do you have any better idea today, even if you can't tell us of the details why, of why this person did this? >> i don't know that we can answer that question just yet. there's an immense amount o
artists. welcome to the show, deborah. tell us how this program began 20 years ago. >> the program began 20 years ago. our founder was an environmentalist and an activist and an artist in the 1970's. she started these street sweeping campaigns in the city. she started with kids. they had an exhibition at city hall. city officials heard about her efforts and they invited her to this facility. we thought it would coincide with our efforts to get folks to recycle, it is a great educational tool. since then, we have had 95 professional artists come through. >> how has the program changed over the years? how has the program -- what can the public has an artist engage with? >> for the most part, we worked with metal and wood, what you would expect from a program like ours. over the years, we tried to include artists and all types of mediums. conceptual artists, at installation, photographers, videographers. >> that has really expanded the program out. it is becoming so dynamic right now with your vision of interesting artists in gauging here. why would an artist when to come here? >> mainly, a
. that is being rolled out at education, energy, treasury, u.s. aid, other agencies as well. these programs are celebrating the use of open data and hopefully will provide some additional support. i think there are even folks here who have been part of these events. we're excited for that continued support and hope you can all join this initiative in the neutral. -- future. >> so, earlier you were talking a little about kind of how san francisco came in in terms of actually ading the officer. more broadly how do you think san francisco compares and what are some of the other cities that are doing really well in terms of open data? >> i should be clear. when san francisco is third, we have a pact. i'll add to that actually. what's great in san francisco is there is not just going to be a chief data officer. there is also the office of civic innovation. jay's team, shannon's team. by having both of those units in place i think there is going to be a really powerful team. because you can't just open up the data. you have to do things like this, where you get the community together or you have

home. she was sun someone who liked to garden and play a dice came called bunko. don lemon joining us now. you spoke with four of her friends about her personality, her approach to motherhood. standing by to get that information from don. don has been working the story and connect with don as soon as we can. as we watch all of these developments unfold, you and i have been here now for a couple of days, irgot to tell you doesn't get easier, but more painful by the hour as we learn details of the six adults, all women, 20 kids, first graders, ages 6 and 7 who were killed. >> just yesterday all the names were released by police. you go down the list, you see the names and the ages, 6 years old, 7 years old, just person after person, child after child, it is still just so hard to understand. we are learning about each person killed. one person you may be familiar with is emilie parker, just 6 years old. her father, robert, spoke publicly last night, one of the only parents to have come forward to speak publicly after this tragedy. here is some of what he said. >> emilie was a noerpt her
in developing this. so, as far as creating access to the public, using the open data sets, and creating exposure to neighborhoods that you probably traditionally didn't even think were there, we realized there were 1200 different facilities all through the park -- all through the city as we were going out to explore. and upon our own discovery, and i being a local native, i didn't know about 800 of them. so, as we move forward into the future, taking this, working with some other departments like san francisco arts, we're creating access for people, creating efficiency with the government being able to manage transactions, creating a platform for people to actually interact with the city on a level that hasn't been done before. so, ideally, using the san francisco rec and park, the future san francisco arts app, using our mobile commerce to manage that is creating jobs, revenue, and efficiency for the public and tourists to be able to navigate san francisco in a way that hasn't been done before. thank you. >> all right. (applause) >> so, we're going to show another application from motion launch
. >> what we've done is make it about us, and it's become kind of one of the biggest, gluttonous feasdaysn the christianalendar. ♪ >> welcome, i'm bob abernethy it's good to have you with us. as the country expressed outrage over the deadly shooting rampage at the connecticut elementary school--one of the worst mass shootings ever--faith leaders called for special prayers for the victims, their families, and the children who witnessed the tragedy. amid more debates on capitol hill over e so-cled fiscal cliff, religious groups continued pushing congress to reach a fair deal. several faith groups were also watching closely as the supreme court announced it would take up two important cases dealing with same - sex marriage. today, we have a special report from tim o'brien on the issues and personal stories behind these cases. one is the defense of marriage act, doma, passed by congress in 1996. the other is the famous proposition 8, in caiforni which would hav fordden same-sex marriage in that state. >> four years ago, voters in california approved proposition 8, an amendment to the stat
will be used to help pay for the funerals of the victims, john. >>> police say they have found important evidence during their searches at the school and at the shooter's home. we also know now more about the actual shooting and what weapons were used in it. cnn national correspondent susan candiotti joins me now and, susan, what are we learning this morning? >> hi, john. well, we know one thing and that is that federal agents and other investigators who will be back out pounding out the streets today, chasing down leads, information they have that the suspected shooter in this case may have visited gun stores or gun ranges in the days before the attack. however, so far our sources tell us that those tips have not panned out. we also know that three additional guns have been found, according to our sources, at the home that the shooter shared with his mother. we're standing down the street from that house right now. we are told that one of those three weapons, which are all described to me as older model rifles, at least one of them have been traced to the mother. they're still conductin
of the victims children. fox news confirms the three weapons used were legally purchased and legally registered to lanza's mother. joining us now, psychotherapist robby, ludwig, and we talkedded about these killings far too much. in this instance, young, i mean, talking 5-year-old children, makes it all the more tragic p p >> right, and, i mean, sometimes what we see is these spree killers target children because they are an easy mark, and they know it's such a heinous crime. they target people during the workweek. they target them during work hours because th know that they can get the most amount of people during that time. there's always a connection. there's always some straw that broke the camel's back, always some major rejection that this individual can't tolerate, and the way they handle it is by targeting somebody that means something to them so what did the school mean to this particular shooter? what did the children mean? lou: and to kill his mother, that, in itself, and that is the beginning of the spree, as you described p -- described it. >> right, yeah. lou: that led to the murd
. as a consequence of the video. >> as she said, no one has been blameless. joining us now is the fox news middle east analyst. it is great to have you with us. what is your reaction first to her claim that she did not misrepresent and did not, if you will, lie about what happened in benghazi? >> she may be stating that the diversion of national security and the version given to her -- she said she did not commit a live with the american public knowing that it is. on the other hand, there was an assessment made in washington prior to that, the next two hours after the attack, saying clearly that this was a terrorist attack by armed people. in between the two, there is a political decision not to tell the truth as to what happened for political reasons. that is something that the ambassador cannot get out of. it would be in and also looking at everything that has happened before. it would have been in congress, and that is not something that's going to change the decision by congress. lou: i know that in washington dc there is a view strongly held by many. but a parallel view of the universe, alth
with us today. >>> and as this list is revealed late today of the victims. some of the youngest names and faces. we have learned that a member of our own abc family has learned that she's lost one of her own relatives. we're praying for all of the families here tonight. >>> of course, what's happened here defies understanding. this evening we do know more about what happened as it unfolded yesterday, how this gunman blazed his way into that school and abc's dan harris has the latest. he reports now from across town at the fire station. dan, good evening. >> reporter: david, good evening to you. as you know well having covered this story since the moment it broke, there have been so many contradictory and false reports about exactly what happened inside that school, but tonight, finally, we're get a fuller picture of those first, frantic moments. at around 9:30 a.m., the suspect armed to the teeth and coated in kevlar forced his way into the school by breaking the glass here at the front entrance. the chards still visible even from the air today. >> units responding to sandy hook schoo
an excellent job briefing us. he is being very precise on all of the details, he doesn't want to get ahead of the information that they have and so far, i have been very impressed. >> yes, ma'am to that point, they asked about nancy lanza, he says i don't know which gun she was shot with but does know it was the bushmaster the one used in the school, very specific and very careful so we know what we are getting is right. we are learning some new details about how the victims died and the ongoing investigation this afternoon. here is what we know right now. wolf, police say crime scene investigators wrapping up work in the parking lot of the sandy hook elementary school. work continues inside the school and as you just heard lieutenant vance talking about, there were three guns found next to the body of the suspected gunsman, 20-year-old adam lanza, he killed himself with the handgun and used the bushmaster ar 15 to shoot his victims. the semiautomatic rifle really was the main weapon used. we have also used that the 20 children killed inside the school were shot multiple times, every singl
updating us. soledad, very interesting development. apparently all these false social media reports allegedly supposedly from this killer out there and the warning from this police chief, the warning is specific, warning being if you get engaged and circulate these false reports with threats out there, you are violating the law and they will go after you? >> yeah. he was tough on that. one of the things he said, while not specifically referencing any specific social media reports, he said that there is erroneous information coming out, all their information is on their official website and not to trust anything that was just being repeated or created on social media. highlighting, of course, that there had been contradictory information, just wrong information. very tough on that as you heard in that press conference, wolf? >> yeah. because some of these social media sites i've seen one or two of them over the past day or so, and they're making these accusations and these threats out there and scare something folks and these are totally obviously erroneous. the authorities are going
something that defines us, but something that inspires us to be better, to be more compassionate and more humble people. >> a father, a family, a community in grief. their hearts are heavy. weary of these tragedies. i'm don lemon. >>> good morning, everyone. i'm john berman. >> i'm kate bolduan. we're live in newtown, connecticut. >>> president obama will be coming here later today. he will meet with some of the victims' families and speak at a vigil being held here tonight. meanwhile, we're learning more about this tragedy and the victims, 20 children, 6 adults died in friday's shooting at the sandy hook elementary school. >> everybody's death was caused by, everyone that we completed so far was caused by gunshot wounds. and, obviously, the manner of death on all these cases has been classified as homicide. >> that was the medical examiner. he also offered this disturbing detail. all of the victims he's seen, they were shot more than once. >> just amazing to even hear him recount what he's seen in really chilling, chilly detail, tom. >> we will have much more on the victims. of
in america. it is now the grief-stricken home of the second deadliest school shooting in u.s. history. 28 people are dead, including the shooter. late today, connecticut's chief medical examiner, wayne carver, reported that the autopsies on all the children are now complete. all 20 of them were shot more than once by 20-year-old adam lanza. police have also released the names of those killed, eight boys, 12 girls, between the ages of 6 and 7. all were first graders. six adults at the school were also murdered, and investigators say they now have some very good evidence explaining what wasde . we have a team of cbs news correspondents and producers on this still-developing story. we begin with margaret brennan here in newtown. >> reporter: gflg, jim. and the bodies of those 12 girls, eight boys, and six adult women killed right here in the sandy hook shooting yesterday are being returned to their families tonight, more than 24 hour after the brutal mass six-year-old emilie parker and jesse lewis. tomorrow, the medical examiner will conduct autopsies on adam lanza and his mother. and the fa
